Our office is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Welcome to The Franklin County Times online edition. We're glad you've come on board with us today and hope you'll be back many times in the future. We're excited about the opportunities the World Wide Web offers our readers and our newspaper.
The Franklin County Times is said to have begun publication in 1879. The fire of 1953 which destroyed the Franklin County Courthouse also destroyed files of Franklin County newspapers and much data must now be gathered from clippings and oral accounts handed down from generation to generation.
Boone Newspapers purchased the Franklin County Times in 1978. The Franklin County Times now publishes every Sunday, Wednesday and Friday.
The Franklin County Times may be reached by calling 256.332.1881 or by e-mailing any staff member by using the following e-mail address format:
